Her daughters with former husband Bruce Willis – Rumer, 21, Scout, 18, and Tallulah, 16 – may be grown, but Demi Moore, 47, hasn't ruled out having another child, this time with husband (since 2005) Ashton Kutcher, 32.

"We talk about it and it's something that we would like," Moore tells U.K. Elle for its May issue. "He's an amazing father to my daughters already, so I have no doubt that if it's in our future, it would be another incredible part of our journey together."

Pregnancy is a trip Moore's taken before, and memorably – posing naked for Vanity Fair in 1991, while she was carrying Scout.


"I was brave. I was so brave! I had no sense of the impact that it would have. I just wanted to push the boundaries," says Moore. "I wanted to remove the limitations that I felt were being imposed on me. Why couldn't I be a mother and have a career?"

That career is due to kick-start again: In July, Moore begins shooting a comedy with Miley Cyrus, titled LOL, Moore Tweeted this week. Based on a French movie of the same title, it involves a teen dealing with her first heartbreak and with the recent divorce of her mother.

As for being a real-life mom, Moore suggests that next time around she might be less concerned with the effect a pregnancy could have on her figure.

"I had an extreme obsession with my body. I made it a measure of my own value. I tried to dominate it, which I did, and I changed it multiple times over," she says. "But it never lasted and ultimately it didn’t bring me anything but temporary happiness. Does being thin resolve anything? No."

She adds, "The irony is that when I abandoned that desire to dominate my body, it actually became the body that I always wanted. But it only happened when I stopped trying to control it. At the end of the day, this kind of obsession is pointless and meaningless."
